I am clueless about it because I don’t have a little girl in my house anymore, so I don’t really know much about the recent movie “Frozen” except that it was very popular. Parents of a child under 9 will be more familiar with the lyrics and the story line. A main character in the movie was the princess and as you would expect, the Disney artists made her gown magnificent and I’ve had a lot of requests about whether we could design a project to make something similar.
While I didn’t see the movie, I am certainly still familiar with having “princess” in the house and I know how much little girls love the idea of princess costumes. My daughter, who is now fifteen, used to parade herself around day and night in a tutu. On “bad” or extreme princess days the regalia would include wings, tiara, light up sneakers, jeans, hand bag (with pink fur trim), sparkling jacket, and sword. It was a bizarre cross between Tinkerbell and Joan-of-Arc. I say Tinkerbell, because my girl was tiny, born 9 weeks premature. She was the size of a little doll and people often asked, should she really be doing that?
Little girls often want to feel like princesses and I always got true enjoyment of watching my girl wearing a costume I have made. For moms or grandmothers with similar requirements, here’s is an easy one. I have lined it because the netting could become itchy around the armhole. It is necessary to use very soft nylon netting or tulle.
